After killing off everyone in the Chamber of the Eyes you looted and pillaged!!! You all snagged some barrels of wine and mead, you grabbed some of the meat that was stored in C4, and you uncovered documents in Lord Cleegah the Questionable’s room. Upon reading the note, you all understood that he’s the contact for acquiring slaves and he knows Rendil; not that the two are related.
Upon your safe return to Seven Pillared Hall, you all went straight to Rendil’s Inn. He offered you food and drink – on the house. He made breakfast for you all the next morning. After you guys ate this nice, free breakfast, Dugrak went and scared the shit out of poor little Rendil intimidating him into being a bit more forthcoming. Quivering, he tells you that he’s overheard that the duergar of Clan Grimmerzhul, bought a lot of provisions from Dreskin just recently. He also told you that the duergar have a trading post here in the Hall, but rumor has it that they have a fortress somewhere deeper in the Labyrinth.
You also find out that the Drow had a useful, map of the labyrinth. He willingly gave you this map in the hope you retrieve his friend’s dagger, from somewhere in the labyrinth. Your understanding in this matter/story is vague at best. The map’s a bit old and worn in some places but generally, it’s in good enough shape to guide you in the direction you need to go in. The map contains little writing. The writing that is there, gives you markers (like runes) and other things to look for to keep you on track.
In addition to your events at Seven Pillared Hall, you happen upon two other places: Grimmerzhul’s Trading Post, and Dreskin’s shop.
You all went to the trading post to try and sell your wares. You all then, backed down and left the Trading Post; seemed that the Clan was ready for a fight and you decided not to give them one. You tried to sell your loot/booty and the members of the Clan were not being co-operative in offering you any reasonable amount of money to buy the mead/ale and meats. You were wise to check around and see if you were being watched. Meth’s successful, perception check revealed that your presence had been announced to the others, and that there were eyes staring at you from behind the door in the shop. You took your stuff and promptly left.
Dreskin, it was learned, was capitalizing on the property that belonged to the slaves who passed through the Hall. It was obvious that the merchandise in his store consisted of many stolen items. You all can come to the conclusion that the slaves were stripped of their belongings before heading to where they were being used. Dreskin was obtaining all of those belongings.
Dreskin was willing to purchase your goods and even offered you barter in his shop for the remaining money he owed you for the transaction of the barrels and meat. Aztrid, not announcing herself as your party member, came in and bitch slapped Dreskin around his shop. When Dreskin was attacked, his toupe slid to the side of his head, his soiled shirt was cut to shreds and he’d taken quite a few minor lacerations – none of which managed to hit an artery. After Aztrid gathered her information and left, Meth healed Dreskin. Dreskin appreciated the help.
Presently, Aquarius is at the Inn making copies of the map for all of you.
Mialee, in wolf form, has just seen Dreskin sneak out of his shop and go into the Grimmerzhul Trading Post. He was heavily cloaked and obviously trying NOT to be seen.
